Firefighters will walk out on strike for eight consecutive days as a blazing row over pensions rumbles on.

Members of the Fire Brigade Union (FBU) have already staged 14 strikes in protest against plans to raise the retirement age and from 55 to 60 and to increase their individual pension contributions.

They will now hold eight further strikes starting on Monday, July 14 and will also join a nationwide strike by public sector workers.
